Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1 Chronicles 8 & 9)
“Springtime and A New Beginning!”
Text: 1 Chronicles 9:1-2
“So all Israel was recorded by genealogies, and indeed, they were inscribed in the book of the kings of Israel. But Judah was carried away captive to Babylon because of their unfaithfulness.
And the first inhabitants who dwelt in their possessions in their cities were Israelites, priests, Levites, and the Nethinim.”
“Springtime and a New Beginning,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God’s Correction of His People Always leaves room for a remnant who will repent and obey His commandments. To this remnant who submit to God’s Correction He brings Springtime and a New Beginning…..
With one sentence He passes over 70 years of captivity in Babylon: “But Judah was carried away captive to Babylon because of her unfaithfulness.”
And now God presents a United Israel to us. No longer Judah and Israel but now He tells us: “the first inhabitants that dwelt in their possessions and their cities were “Israelites,” Priests, Levites, and Nethinim.
God kept Israel’s Promised Land “empty,” waiting for Israel to return to it, after their Correction. In their correction of captivity both Israel and Judah held on to God’s Promise of a Springtime and New Beginning up ahead waiting for them.
Listen up Warrior! God corrects you and I as His Warrior and we confess and repent as His Faithful Warrior! We need to understand that Our Commander and King has a goal with His Correction and that is to bring you and I into a Springtime and a New Beginning.
A Springtime of the peaceable fruit of righteousness, (Heb.12:11),
and a New Beginning by forgiving, restoring, and cleansing you and I of all unrighteousness!” (1John 1:9).
Like the great Warrior King David, the Faithful Warrior lives a Lifestyle of Repentance; and that keeps the freshness of Springtime and New Beginnings with our Commander growing in our Life! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
